First day at school with hair down curly :)

It went alright. I got three "I like your hair, how'd you do it"s and two "OMG your hair's so pretty". :mrgreen:

One of my teachers said she didn't recognize me because of my "big hair"...didn't know how to take that. Big hair's sort of a 70s thing right? So it felt a bit awkward.

But meh, it was alright. It was weird cause I felt like everyone was watching me.

Just wish I could stop my hair from poofing and frizzing so much! I think I've got everything else down - curl shape, pattern, etc - but that and it's sooo frustrating. :angry6:

Anyways just thought I'd share my experience. You guys probably know what I'm talking about right...the first day you show off your natural hair :)
Hair type: 2C-3A, very dry, extremely low porosity, med elasticity, insanely thick kinky-wavy.
HGs: Trader Joe's Nourish spa conditioner, Epsom salt rinse, Joico K-pak conditioner

    Haha, well apart from that teacher it seems like people liked it! I had friends that didn't know I had curly hair until we had a pool party. It was actually really weird.

    Keep showing your curly pride :D

    My friends all like my hair better curly. So do a lot of th girls at my school. But now that it looks so much better, I'm beyond excited to show them :)
    My hair is stubborn. What I thought would help me only resulted in horrible, damaged hair. Straightening my hair is now the only reasonable thing I can do. So, I am no longer CG. Not until my hair gets fixed.
    Goal- Long, shiny locks! Currently shoulder length when curly. Goal is to reach around right below chest area. Wish me luck! :)
